INSIGHT Studio Performances

Thu 25 – Fri 26 September 2014, 6pm

Venue: New Zealand School of Dance, Te Whaea: National Dance & Drama Centre, 11 Hutchison Road, Newtown, Wellington

Intimate performances of classical and contemporary dance give audiences a first-hand experience of the School.

Seeing NZSD students dance in the studio where they train provides a real insight into these two contrasting techniques and the repertoire they are learning.

Highlights in term three will include Rose Adage taught by Pablo Aharonian, guest tutor from Ballet de Santiago, and other excerpts from Sleeping Beauty coached by Pablo with NZSD tutor Nadine Tyson. The contemporary dance students will present previews of some of the works being rehearsed for Graduation Season in November, including excerpts from Dutch choreographer Wessel Oostrum’s The Speech and New Zealand dance theatre artist Douglas Wright's RAPT.

Entry is by koha/donation and no booking is required.

Howard Davis Review: The Creole Stylings of Cécile McLorin Salvant

"You only get a singer like this once in a generation or two," commented Wynton Marsalis, who has repeatedly hired her to front his jazz orchestra and mounted a 25 foot high portrait of her on the exterior of Lincoln Center. “She radiates authority. She has poise, elegance, soul, humour, sensuality, power, virtuosity, range, insight, intelligence, depth, and grace.” More>>

Max Rashbrooke Review: The King's Singers and Voices New Zealand

To be good at one thing is impressive; to be so versatile across a range of genres is truly exceptional. The latest incarnation of this six-strong male singing group includes Kiwi Christopher Bruerton, and it was a delight to hear him sing the solo on the achingly beautiful My Love Is like a Red, Red Rose.
